ESPN Payoffs

first_imgHave you wondered how much money is available for college teams to have their games televised on networks like ESPN?  One 12-team conference reportedly has a 155 million dollar TV contract for its 12 members to share.  This amounts to about 12.9 million per school.  This money is only for the regular season and does not include any bowl games or NCAA basketball tournament games in which the conference schools might participate.Now we have individual conference networks.  The BTN (Big Ten Network) has been in operation for several years now and prompted the conference to add Rutgers and Maryland so they could reap the benefits of an East Coast audience.  The SEC (South Eastern Conference) has its own network, and schools such as Kentucky even broadcast practices and scrimmage games.  Who knows how much money they bring in from these broadcasts?Since the Big 5 conferences have been given permission by the NCAA to make some of their own rules, the sky might be the limit as to what they will do to keep the big bucks coming.  The smaller conferences have reason to worry because they must scrape and scratch to pay for their programs.  This is why the Mid American Conference is willing to play games on weekday nights so ESPN will televise them.  I could not find how much ESPN pays for these games, but it must be quite profitable.last_img read more

Rodgers regrets impending departure of ‘special’ Maguire

first_imgMaguire becomes United’s third summer signing following full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, who arrived from Crystal Palace and Swansea respectively.His arrival — provided he agrees personal terms and passes his medical — should provide United with the leadership and authority that has been missing from their defence.They conceded 54 goals last term, only West Ham and Watford of the top 13 Premier League clubs let in more.Maguire will give manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a surfeit of central defenders in taking the total to seven, although Ivory Coast international Eric Bailly is out of action till December with a knee injury.Maguire made 69 Premier League appearances for Leicester and signed a new five-year contract with the Foxes last September.United’s transfer business is unlikely to stop there with a potential swap deal involving Argentinian striker Paulo Dybala joining them from Juventus and Belgian international Romelu Lukaku moving to the Italian champions.Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: Harry MaguireLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Harry Maguire, described as a “special player” by Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers, is set to become the world’s most expensive defender after Manchester United agreed to pay a reported fee of £80 million ($97 million).The 26-year-old central defender –coveted by United since he starred as England reached the World Cup semi-finals — is to undergo a medical at United over the weekend.“The clubs have agreed (a fee) and there’s still some work for it to go through,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.“He’s a special player, he’s not a player that of course we would want to lose.“He’s a top-class player, he’s a good man as well, and everything about Harry over the course of this pre-season, he knows there has been interest over the summer and he’s been super professional.”Maguire’s fee out-strips Dutch international Matthijs van Ligt who in July moved to Juventus from Ajax for a combined fee of 75 million euros plus 10.5 million euros of add-ons.De Ligt’s compatriot Virgil van Dijk cost Liverpool £75 million when he moved from Southampton in January 2018.Maguire’s value has soared in five years, costing Hull just £2.5 million when they signed him from Sheffield United in 2014 — Leicester then snapped him up in 2017 for £12 million.last_img read more

Westport Winery Adds Orchard Golf to their Destination Winery Activities

first_imgSubmitted by Westport WineryWestport Winery, known for its innovation as a destination winery, has added golf to its list of free amenities. Winery co-owner, Kim Roberts, calls it “mowing with a purpose.” The nine-hole pitch and putt course is situated within one of Vineyard By-the-Sea’s three orchards. “We have over twenty acres of vineyards, orchards and berries that we farm,” her husband Blain said. “All of these crops demand a maintenance regime that allows them to flourish without undo competition from grasses and weeds, so our team spends a lot of time mowing throughout the summer. Designing the opportunity for our guests to play golf within these crops made sense.”The idea itself came from Kim Roberts’ sister and brother-in-law, Jill and Stan Schwartz. “My sister and her husband have a wheat farm and cattle ranch in Eastern Washington. A number of years ago they created an event center at their place. They had been manicuring one grazing field for what’s called pasture golf. It turned out to be a really fun and popular part of their agricultural destination.”Since the Roberts are not currently raising livestock on their farm, other than chickens and pigs, they will adjust the name of their playing field from pasture golf to orchard golf. Blain Roberts said, “It’s a nine-hole orchard-golf course. There are no long fairways or putting greens. Play is limited to a 9-iron or chipping wedge. And it’s free to play. We just want to have a place that is fun for all ages, all year.”In September, Westport announced the creation of their own brand of cider. Blain said, “Since 2008 we’ve been Westport Winery and Vineyards By-the-Sea. The second half of our name is finally creating a stronger presence as our daughter Carrie starts producing By-the-Sea Cider in addition to her responsibilities as our general manager.”Kim Roberts, a former architect and honorary master gardener, designed the course herself which she said posed several interesting challenges. “The design was formed around our existing Shinseiki and Chojuro Asian pears and Jonathan apple trees. They are an integral part of our new cidery, so they are sacred to our agricultural mission. We also have some springs on our farm that create perfect water hazards. Plus we have a nursery so we’re eager to show our guests new design applications of favorite plants. And finally, with our incredibly talented local artists we have created an outdoor sculpture garden. By moving some fences for this orchard golf course we open up great opportunities for our guests to explore and enjoy more of our farm.”The couple’s son, Dana, is the director of winemaking for the family. Part of this job description is managing the vineyards where they grow Pinot Noir and Muscat of Norway. This integration of agriculture and entertainment is not new to him as one of his vineyards is also a grape maze. He said, “We encourage our guests to explore our farm with lots of educational signage and unique experiential learning opportunities. Greater knowledge about what it takes to create food for our country is an important part of preserving the family farm tradition.” Facebook3Tweet0Pin0 Westport Winery, the 2013 Best in the Northwest Destination Winery and 2011 Washington Winery to Watch, is located on the corner of Highway 105 and South Arbor Road halfway between Westport and Aberdeen.
